The retreat is facilitated by Geneseo faculty and staff. Students explore issues related to power, privilege, social class, gender, ethnicity & race, sexual orientation, religious differences, age, and physical/mental ability. Workshops, exercises, presentations, and discussions allow participants to examine how these issues affect both their academic and co-curricular lives on campus and beyond, and to explore their own values and beliefs.
In 2021, the retreat will be held January 28-31, 2021. There is no cost to participants. Submit your interest form.
